Build These Work Bench Helpers
By Sheldon Slusser
 *This work bench helper can be a blessing in disguise for when you are working on a painting project and it won’t cost you and arm and a leg to make.

Material List:
(1) 5” piece of 1”x4” pine
(3) small alligator clips
(2) small black wire clips
(1) 5”x1” piece of sandpaper
Step 1:
Drill 3 holes the size of the shank of your alligator clips across the top. If you keep it tight then you can easily replace them if needed.
Step 2:
Install the 2 black wire clips, these serve as a paint brush holder
Step 3:
Drill two holes that match the size of the paint bottles you use. These keep your bottles from being knocked over too easily.
Step4:
Glue down the strip of sandpaper along the bottom edge.

 

*This helper is for glue, just squeeze a little in one of the caps and dip a toothpick in to get out what you need. The key here is to use a short piece of a wood shim so the caps sit on a slight incline.
